Kanye West changed the trajectory of the Adidas sneaker brand when he joined forces with them to create the Yeezy Boost line. This popular sneaker has been a best seller and sneaker enthusiasts anxiously await the announcements of their favorite models at the beginning of each year. For 2020, The Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN sneaker in a Bone colorway has become the latest sensation. If you've not yet had the privilege of ownership, here are 10 things you didn't know about the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN in Bone.
1. It's been a long time coming
The initial announcement of the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN in Bone was made on January 9, 2020. A prototype of the silhouette was displayed to give sneaker enthusiasts an idea of what to expect in the near future. It was suggested that the release date for the new sophisticated sneaker would take place sometime in April of this year. It was first released for the European and Chinese markets on April 25, 2020, but consumers in the United States had to wait until July 11, 2020.
2. The sneaker lives up to its name
This version of the Yeezy Boost features a prominent badging of 700 on the sides of each sneaker. This is an artistic application that slants upwards with lines through the zeros to give it a unique decorative effect. At first glance, it appears to be an ornate detailing but it just takes a second for the brain to process the fact that these are numbers instead of mere designs. It works very well as a design feature that lends meaning to the shoe. Adidas chose 3M reflective material for the accents so you'll show up in the dark when headlights approach.
3. This is the debut year for the sneaker
If you're looking for a brand new model that you've never tried before, this may be the perfect opportunity. This is the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN's debut to the world. It's brand new to the market and you can be among the first to give it a try. We found it interesting that the introductory edition is offered in a single neutral color. There isn't a lot of fanfare in the design but it offers cool sophisticated elegance that will work with a variety of different wardrobe items.
4. The lacing system is unique
One of our favorite features of the new Yeezy 700 Bone sneakers is the lacing system. From a distance, they look like regular laces, but when you get up close they're really quite different. Instead of going with the traditional shoelace system, The Yeezy 700 MNVN sneakers have a bungee type lace. This means that they are no-tie sneakers that self adjust to give you a great fit.
5. The black is a nice contrast
This edition features a design that is obviously well thought out. The neutral bone color is sophisticated in itself. Adidas took it to the next level with the addition of reflective white accents. They also added a black midsole with black accents in the bungee lace holders, the bungees, and the pull tab on the heel of the shoe. The color scheme fits together nicely.
6. They live up to the "Boost" reputation
There are certain things that consumers who are fans of the Yeezy Boost sneaker line have come to expect. That is comfort and the springy boost that they deliver with each step. This new model is no exception. This most recent member of the family is made with the popular full-length drop-in Boost materials at the midsoles.
7. There is a Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Bone for every guy in the family
The Yeezy 700 in Bone has been released in a variety of different sizes. You can find them in infants' sizes, for kids, for youth, and for adults. Adidas is watching out for its loyal fan base from the cradle to old age with a range of sizes. It's a model that you can buy for all the guys in the family.
8. The price is a little steep
The Yeezy 700 MNVN in Bone has come out to the public with a moderately high price tag. Infants sizes start at $140 per pair with Kids' sizes at $160 per pair. Adult sized sneakers in this line are going for $220 per pair. If the price bothers you, this is the manufacturer's suggested retail selling price. This is an exclusive sneaker. Currently, it's uncertain how many sets the brand is planning to produce for the summer. We're promised that stocklists will be forthcoming so you will know which local vendors will carry them.
9. They're well ventilated
We like the fact that these sneakers are made of nylon material. This is a highly breathable fabric that allows air to enter through the weave of the material and to circulate over and around the feet. This helps to prevent overheating and perspiration for a drier and more comfortable fit. To add to the comfort, they are cushioned with the Boost material in all the right places and at pressure points.
10. The price is already going up
Not every shoe store will have access to the new Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN in Bone. It's an exclusive shoe that will only be sold by select retailers. Within just a few days after the initial release date kickoff, we've already seen the prices start to rise for the sneaker. When we visited the stockx.com website we saw that an adult's size 9 sneaker had sold for $423 on the low end with a whopping $450 bid on the high end. There is no doubt still some cheaper places to find this highly popular sneaker model but it's wise to shop early as the more that the supplies begin to dwindle the higher the prices are going to go up.
